BLACKBERRY FARM, AGAIN
I've finished the next batch of cat blankets for the RSPCA and will take them to Quainton in a day or two. I'm gradually getting through my crate of wool but I'm not going to buy any more just yet. I've dragged my old magnifying light from upstairs and (providing I don't trip over the cable) can more or less see to do stitching. For part of the day, at least. Back come the hexies I was making during the summer...
thread running through it which tended to separate from the other yarn so you could easily knit it as two stitches instead of one.
I've bought a Tumbler template and am gradually cutting a few pieces to make a handstitched version though, as usual, I don't know what it will be if I ever get round to finishing it. I've only cut 11 shapes at the moment... and I found a box of Tumbling Blocks I must have started about 3 years ago and given up on as I didn't have enough materials to choose a colour in three different tones. But I've been buying FQs for some time now, so I should have enough to do some more.
It's quite gloomy today, but better than scraping the car windows yesterday morning. It was the first real frost. I'm sure it won't be the last!
Keep well, everyone.
